Such a good podcast

Considering this is devoted to the films which don't outstay their welcome, it's appropriate the podcast does exactly that. A wonderful conversation between all involved, and you get a great number of recommendations to boot.

Always a fun and informative time!

The conversations Sam and his guests share are always informative without ever being too long-winded or dry. It's always refreshing to hear a few true film geeks discuss their passion.

Highly recommended for film fans

This has been a great find. In each episode Sam the host interviews a guest about a film the guest has nominated to be part of the hypothetical 90 minutes or less film festival. Sam is a brilliant interviewer, and the guests are always interesting and intelligent. Cue high-quality, entertaining discussion about a range of films, some I’d heard of and others I enjoyed being introduced to.
